Bug Description

On regular restarts (once bug 460089 is fixed) the CC will retain network state so that active VMs can continue to run.
If the CC network configuration is changed in /etc/eucalyptus/eucalyptus.conf, "restart eucalyptus" will not be enough to take it into account. You'll have to pass CLEAN=1 to the job (maybe rebooting works).

We might need to make it more apparent to the user, by providing a eucalyptus-clean-network-state script and documenting its use in eucalyptus.conf and elsewhere.

I'm actually raising this priority to High.

I've been struggling with this (silly) problem for a couple of days now, wondering why my changes aren't taking effect.

This should be documented in the manpage, and *possibly* in line in the eucalyptus.(local.)conf files. We should knock this out at the sprint.
